Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Athersys stock:

  • Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "Athersys is developing MultiStem, an off-the-shelf cell therapy that promotes tissue repair. The lead indication is ischemic stroke. Existing stroke treatments, which focus on removing the offending blood clot, can only be used in a short window of time, but MultiStem has shown efficacy in a longer time window (24-36 hours) and can thus address far more patients. Athersys' Japanese partner Healios will start a 220-patient pivotal trial shortly. Data is expected in mid-2018. While there is some controversy around the Phase II data, we believe the trial has a favorable risk:reward in what we see as a blockbuster opportunity. Initiate at Buy with a $7 price target." (2/7/2017)
  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Athersys is a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of therapeutic product candidates designed to extend and enhance the quality of human life. The company's lead product candidate, ATHX-105, is an oral, selective 5HT2c receptor agonist in Phase I clinical trials for the treatment of obesity. The company is also developing other orally active pharmaceutical product candidates for the treatment of metabolic and central nervous system disorders, utilizing proprietary technologies, including Random Activation of Gene Expression (RAGE). Athersys is developing MultiStem(r), its patented, adult-derived ``off the shelf'' stem cell product platform, for multiple disease indications, including damage caused by myocardial infarction, bone marrow transplantation/oncology support, ischemic stroke and other indications.
